Raw Edge Quilt

At last I made another quilt, I bought a layer cake, which is 42, 10inch squares of fabric, I have to confess that this has been sitting in my stash for nearly 2 yrs. this was the easiest and quickest quilt ever, and the more it is washed and dried the better it is.
You can find the Tutorial, the link to click on is at the bottom of the post. Or you can copy and paste here.  http://bloomandblossom.blogspot.co.uk/2010/10/raw-edge-layer-cake-quilt-tutorial.html.

I think the fabric is called Whimsy by Fig tree.
This is the front, with the raw edges.

I'm such a bad blogger.
It was Grace's Birthday a couple of weeks ago and My Daughter Nicola made a super cake using a cupcake cake tin. This cake is huge and would easily feed 2 doz people.
Grace loved it, and I Think she's had some orders to make more. And it was delis. Think she must get her baking skills from her Mother, although don't bake much any more, still watching my weight, daren't take my eyes off the goal for a minute or the weight creeps back on.

It's a cupcake sort of a day

It a double Birthday celebration today. It is my granddaughter Grace's and my Daughter-in-laws Rhiannon's Birthday.
I made a cupcake for Grace and a sweet cupcake box to put it in. We are going over to see her later today, can't wait.
Sorry Rhiannon no cupcake for you, N.Wales is too far away, don't think it would travel very well, and with the terrible postal service in your village it would be mouldy by the time you get it.
